2 Sketches 4 You "Rooster Friend"
Here is the card I made using Kazan's sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. The rooster used to be a pin, but was broken so I got it for free at a garage sale this weekend. SWEET, free is always good and rather than throw it in the trash why not go green and use him on a card. The flowers, eyelets and DP is from Eye-Lets Etc. I made the button out of DP and a 1 inch circle punch. It has about 5 layers of card stock glued layer by layer behind it to make it about as thick as a button. This way I was able to thread ribbon through it without tearing the paper. The white border I made with white card stock punching a row of 3/4" circles and then 1/2" circles. I tried to make it look like chicken wire, maybe silver CS would look a little better??? I don't know, maybe its ok?? I used my Sakura white and gray souffle pens to do faux stitching and as the edging around the piece that says friend. LOVE my souffle pens!
Thanks for stopping by!
